The Miracles Club are bringing their particular brand of holy roll to this weekend’s Warm Up show at MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY. Every week, we’re giving away tickets to each weekend’s show — a summer-long parade of astounding line-ups.
Alfie Palao sent us this picture from the field this weekend at MoMA PS1’s Warm Up show with Four Tet, Falty DL, SBTRKT and other folks. He was one of five people who won two tickets to the show through our weekly contest on Facebook — we’ll be giving away 10 tickets every week through early September. This weekend, a bunch of fantastic talent from France lands in Queens courtesy of agnès b. — see the schedule for this weekend here. Alfie says:
Converted into a SBTRKT believer and dropped out of the beer line when I heard the bass from “Love Cry” signal the start of Four Tet’s set. Good vibes all around.
We love music and we love New York — both things you’ve likely gathered at this point. But we also happen to be really crushed out on MoMA PS1 and their Warm Up summer concert series — it’s a showcase of emerging, obscure and against-the-grain talent happening all summer long every Saturday at PS1 in Queens. Each week, we’re picking five lucky guns to win two tickets for that weekend’s show. Tomorrow, Four Tet and a bunch of other rad musicians and producers perform — go here for a chance to win this week’s tickets. We’ll post this every week, so keep your eyes open, your dice hot and your hopes high.
The Fader will be posting weekly mixes for each week’s show, too — check out this mix by FaltyDL — also performing tomorrow:
